FBI Director James Comey admitted that the "dozen or so" American citizens that are currently fighting with the Islamic State terror group in Syria have the ability and right, as Americans with passports, to return to the homeland.
Appearing in his first major television interview since taking the helm of the Bureau in September 2013, Comey said on CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday night that the FBI is closely tracking about a dozen American citizens whom they believe to be fighting in Syria alongside ISIS militants. He added that although they may be supporting terrorist agendas, they still have the freedom to re-enter the country at anytime by simply using their passport.
"Ultimately, an American citizen, unless their passport is revoked, is entitled to come back," Comey said. "So, someone who's fought with ISIL, with American passport wants to come back, we will track them very carefully." more >>

A ceasefire was signed earlier this year between the government of President Salva Kiir and a rebel group linked to former Vice President Riek Machar, but the situation has not stabilized and fighting continues on a large scale throughout the country. more >>
States with higher rates of charitable giving went for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 and have higher rates of religious practice.
A report published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy found that the most and least charitable states in America fell in mostly different camps in the 2012 Presidential Election.
Terrorists such as ISIS won't be stopped unless Christians help to save the lost boys of the world.
The Lost Boys of Sudan fled violent Islamists, communists and wild animals. Their exodus led them across Ethiopia and eventually to refugee camps in neighboring nations. From camps, the boys were taken to America or other industrialized nations.
Surprisingly, some of the most daunting challenges would lie at their final destinations, such as the USA. Imagine a teenaged orphan's complex transition from rural Sudan to the United States: learning to read and write; the culture shock of TV, the internet, shopping malls, bank accounts and getting a driver's license. more >>
